THE QUEEN OF THE MAY

Children in the village are filled with joy Waiting patiently for the grand parade Each one has a task every girl and boy Sandwiches prepared and tables are laid Laden with treats and ice cold lemonade The may pole bedecked in ribbons so bright Children gasp at such a beautiful sight Kate dreams of becoming Queen of the May Elegant and poised and so full of grace Prays so hard that it will come true one day Her lovely dress made from cream coloured lace Fresh flowers will frame her pretty young face They’ll dance round the maypole on grass so green Just for one day will Kate be the May Queen? Girls dance around in bright coloured dresses Judges choose who is the prettiest girl Sweet scented blooms are pinned in their tresses Ribbons are plaited as the children twirl The May queen in crowned her minds in a whirl Kate’s the prettiest one the judges say Dreams do come true; she is Queen of the May 03~05~15 Contest: On The First of May – Isaiah Zerbst My first attempt at Rhyme Royal – ABABBCC
